Send Your Photos and Help Elephants!

Notorious elephant abusers Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus will be at Coney Island for several months this summer, and now is your chance to “look Ringling in the eye” and join our protest against the circus. You can help animals forced to perform in Ringling Bros. circuses today by pledging not to go to a Ringling circus or any circus that uses animals.

We want you to take a picture of yourself with friends and family and one of our signs, letting Ringling know that you won’t be attending a Ringling circus or any circus that uses animals.

All you have to do is print the sign you want to use below or make your own sign with a marker and a piece of paper. We will post the pictures on PETA’s Filckr page!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
